This new site is really worth knowing about!
Richard Price of Oxford University and a team of people from Stanford University and Cambridge University have produced a social networking site for academic researchers.
It shows researchers around the world in a 'tree' format, organized
according to which institution/department they are affiliated with.
- It enables academics to keep track of the latest news in their field -
the latest people, papers and talks.
We are hoping that Academia.edu will eventually list every academic in the
world -- Faculty members, Post-Docs, and Graduate Students. People can add
their departments, and themselves, to the tree by clicking on the arrows.
The site is getting some traction. Over 9,000 academics have joined
Academia.edu in the last two months.
